OBJECTIVE To assess the nutritional status of a group of institutionalized elderly with dementia by analysing the changes in the body composition according to their evolutionary state. METHOD A cross-sectional study was carried out assessing the nutritional status and the body composition (anthropometry, MNA and bioimpedance) in 63 institutionalized(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES To compare the resting energy expenditure (REE) and the REE/Fat-free-mass (FFM) quotient in children with constitutional leanness (CL) and children with normal body weight, and to describe the within-family clustering of CL. SUBJECTS/METHODS We have studied 18 children and teenagers with CL, 10 girls and 8 boys, and 18 gender and age(More)
OBJECTIVE the aim of this study was to analyze the agreement between the resting energy expenditure (REE) obtained by indirect calorimetry (IC) and that obtained by prediction equations in a sample of healthy adults from Spain. Méthods: a descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in 95 healthy, normal-weight adults. REE was determined by IC and 45(More)
INTRODUCTION although there are precise and accurate techniques for estimating resting energy expenditure, like the indirect calorimetry (IC), daily practice needs faster, easier and cheaper methods as the predictive equations. OBJECTIVE the aim of the study was to develop a new predictive equation for estimating resting energy expenditure (REE) for(More)
